Gordon Ramsay has been criticised for the outrageous price of a dish at his London restaurant. The Michelin-starred chef showed off his 14-day aged Sladesdown farm duck to fans on social media.

But the dish, available as an option on the three-Michelin star restaurant's Carte Blanche menu, didn't impress some. Some said the 'tiny' dish, created as part of a bespoke tasting menu costing £260 per person, was a meal suitable only for a "hamster".

The bespoke creation is offered on the tailor-made tasting menu at the restaurant. The duck is placed alongside a vegetable garnish. Goron shared: "Stunning 14-day aged Sladesdown farm duck from chef Matt Abe at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay."

One reply asked: "Is this a portion for a hamster?" Another commented: "Would still have to grab a pizza on the way home after spending a small fortune on a few bites."

A third fan commented: "Even a toddler would still be hungry with portion size. Sure it tastes great for what little on the plate though."

Another follower cheekily asked: "And where do we go for dinner afterwards?" And another added: "Honestly glad I'm not rich so I get to eat a real meal portion."

Chef Patron Matt Abe, well-known for putting together the prestigious Carte Blanche menu at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, served up a sumptuous duck dish. However, not every Carte Blanche menu would include this delicacy, as Matt has the liberty to craft menus including dishes of his choice.
